Date Night

Last night, Michael took me to Salt Lake City
for a date night with some friends.

There we watched a bunch of guys sliding 
around on ice skates

with these bent sticks

dressed like Frosty the Snowman,

waiting for this guy in stripes
to drop a black rock on the ice

just hoping they could hit the rock before anyone else
so it would slide across the ice

where they would duke it out
trying to get it in the little net.

It looked like a lot of confusion at times,

but we all had a great time-
including Grizzbee.

In the end, the Grizzlies won
(that would be our team)

and Grizzbee got to do a victory lap on the ice.

Now I can say I've been to my very first hockey game.  :)

Final Goodbye

Dad, a Marine, was given a fitting military grave side honor
 that included a 21 gun salute, taps, and folding of the flag he defended.

Thank a veteran today.
Call or hug your dad today.

Saying goodbye is never easy, but we thank you
for all your prayers for us in the past few days.

A Father and A Son

Early this morning God closed the earthly chapter of Martin Keller
and ushered him into his eternal home with the Savior.

We have only had the privilege of knowing Dad for the last
fifteen years- good years of building relationships
and learning once again just how merciful God is.

How thankful we are that God allowed us to love this dear man!
We will miss him greatly.

"Love between a father and a son
is not always given,
sometimes it must be earned,
and even though it takes a while
for some of us to learn,
you can't deny the love between
a father and a son."
